A wonderful food adventure awaits you at Dakhin, the UK’s first and only Indian restaurant serving 100% entirely gluten free food. Located in Glasgow’s popular Merchant City district, this first floor venue is spacious, light and airy with floor to ceiling windows. Exposed brick, slatted wooden ceiling with hanging greenery, mellow lighting, attractive tiling and illuminated bar combine to create a contemporary and relaxed feel in which to enjoy the South Indian cuisine for which Dakhin is deservedly acclaimed. The open plan kitchen design enables diners to watch the chefs in action while they prepare their speciality dishes and breads, adding to the whole dining experience.
The impressive menu offers an amazing selection of authentic dishes reflecting the food and culture of India’s southern region. Naturally gluten free rice and gram flour is used and the combination of rice, coconut, lentils and regional spices produce dishes which are fragrant, subtle and yet spicy giving South Indian food a unique and distinctive taste. The friendly and knowledgeable staff are most attentive and are happy to advise on any aspect of the food and its preparation.
Dakhin’s unique menu of chicken, lamb, seafood and vegetarian dishes cannot fail to tempt the discerning diner. Starters include the famous Dosa (an elongated wafer-thin crepe with a choice of succulent savoury fillings), Idli Wada (steamed savoury rice cakes or fritters soaked in Sambhar and served with coconut chutney) and, as a GF alternative to naan, speciality breads such as Uluva Chilla, Appam and Siru Uttapam.
Lunch and main courses offer a vast range of dishes, such as the spicy Masa Kondhapur (Lamb with sauce of onion, coconut and crushed red chillies), or the subtle Chemeen Kari (King Prawns in a mild sauce of ginger, curry leaves and coconut cream), and Kozhi Ishtew (Chicken simmered in coconut milk and diced vegetables).
Dessert options include the rich and creamy Paal Payasam (Rice and sweetened milk flavoured with cardamom and cashew nuts) or Mulai Kulfi (Cardamom flavoured traditional Indian ice cream).
Whatever your preference, you are assured of a truly memorable dining experience at the Dakhin South Indian Kitchen.
